Unless you have created entirely a new user id and a password when you installed the 2wire initially, you may try the user id: @WIRExxx (the last three digit of serial# on the under surface of the router) and the 10 digit # just below the serial#, for password...akd

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

We just purchased another laptop computer and cannot connect to the internet. I forgot my password. I have netgear as my wireless. How do I find my password.


The WPA encryption key (password) configured in the Netgear router's wireless settings. Go to your router's wireless settings to get this key and use this key to configure the laptop's wireless card.
NOTE - To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router.
Step 4: Click on Wireless--->Wireless Security to view the Security type and the Key.

I need help i forgot my wireless security key. i now have two laptops i need to hook up


Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

If you need help with that please reply with details about your router model information.

Since you forgot the security ket for the wireless network you need to access the router setup page using the a computer that is working fine with the router,
On the internet exploreer address bar of the working computer type in 192.168.1.1 , then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the username blank and password is admin. If tha admin password didn't work try typing your commonly use password.
If you're already on the setup page of the router, Just go to wireless tab then there's a wireless security sub tab there where you can find the security key that you need...

Hope that helps...........
